Is it normal practise for doctors to change a persons prescription without actually seeing the patient or even ringing them to explain? To explain I am taking 4 types of tablet and have been for a while, ramipril which has disappeared from my prescription and bisoprolol which has shrunk from 10 to 5 mg ...the other 2 remain the same. I will be asking what is happening tomorrow / Tuesday but would like to know if this is common practise.

I have had my prescriptions sent to a local chemist which I pick my pills up from when they text me to say it is ready and have been doing this since the start of the pandemic ..... I am fairly sure it is all done automatically. I will be in touch with them tomorrow or Tuesday but it just seems odd...so wondered if it is common practise to change medication without telling the patient first
Actually Ummm the pharmacist knew nothing about it they just follow what is said on the prescription sent up to them....I am beginning to think that a decision has been made by the doctor but I am too unimportant to contact.....I am afraid I don't do zoom or on line discussions so that is of no use...will pop in ..!!
